Reverse Osmosis & Water Treatment in East Timor (Timor-Leste)


Timor Leste (also known as East Timor) is a nation of about a million people in southeastern Asia, northwest of Australia in the Lesser Sunda Islands at the eastern end of the Indonesian archipelago. Timor-Leste includes the eastern half of the island of Timor and the the Oecussi (Ambeno) region on the northwest portion of the island of Timor, and the islands of Pulau Atauro and Pulau Jaco. On 20 May 2002, Timor-Leste was internationally recognized as an independent state after gaining independence from Indonesia.

Its major environmental issues include widespread use of slash and burn agriculture which has led to deforestation and soil erosion.

The World Bank reports that at least 80 countries have water shortages and 2 billion people lack access to clean water. More disturbingly, the World Health Organization has reported that 1 billion people lack enough water to simply meet their basic needs, unfortunately in many countries water is scarce or contaminated.

Pure Aqua provides wide range of filtration and economical solutions based on the Timor Leste 's water resources.

Timor Leste 's main water resources are:

  • Surface water is water from river, lake or fresh water wetland, which can be treated using different methods, such as Ultrafiltration Systems, Brackish Water RO.
  • Desalination can be used for water from ocean, or sea source, which can be treated using Seawater Reverse Osmosis Systems; Desalination Systems
  • Ground Water or brackish water is from water located in the pore space of soil and rock “Borehole well”, which can be treated using Reverse Osmosis Systems, Chemical Dosing, UV Sterilizers.
  • Government water supply, which could have high level of hardness or high level of chlorine, can be treated with Water Softener Systems, Media Water Filters

Water Treatment Solutions in East Timor
East Timor shares a similar issue as other developing nations with an impoverished population and that is a lack of access to fresh drinking water and sanitation facilities. This is a daily problem with the quality of East Timor’s water being one of the lowest throughout Asia. Several factors that have contributed to the country’s groundwater issues have been identified as:

  • Insufficient funding for the development of water supplies
  • No spare parts available for maintenance
  • Lack of supplies in rural areas
  • Limited technical know-how for new solutions
